Paula was a CBF field personnel missionary from 2007 – 2017 in Owsley and Powell counties in E. Kentucky.
Due to staff cutbacks due to financial issues and a new giving model, Paula is now continuing her same job but with a different title. I am a Poverty Engagement Partner with Together for Hope, which is the Rural Poverty
Initiative program of CBF. We made a twenty year commitment to work in the twenty poorest counties in the US. That number is now growing to over 300 counties.
Some of my ministries include: School mentoring at Owsley County Elementary School and Bowen Elementary School. Assisting individuals and families during crisis times. Encouraging seniors to attend college or vocational school. Serving as a Foster Care Review Board member in six counties. When mission teams want a place to serve in these counties, I find projects or activities for them. I partner with different partners in Owsley and Powell counties so that we can multiply our efforts as I seek to be the presence of Christ in these locations.
Please pray for families who are hurting as a result of the drug crisis in E. Kentucky.
Pray for teens to have a hope and vision for their lives.
Pray for the local churches to be willing to be involved in their communities.
Pray for teachers who are working under difficult circumstances.
